Assessing the Status of Women at the County Level: A Manual for Researchers and Advocates
by Misha Werschkul, Barbara Gault, Ph.D., Heidi Hartmann, Ph.D. (October 2004)

This manual provides instructions for analyzing the status of women at the county level. The manual allows advocates, researchers, and others within each state to assess women’s status at the local level, rank counties, and make cross-county comparisons, by ranking and grading each county on a set of indicators. Such analyses can be conducted for an entire state, a portion of a state, or a region including portions of several states.
